With no developer experience, is is possible to populate a form with information from a row?

I have a form for teams to fill out the requirements for a specific product. I would like them to be able to pull up the original information in the same Form format to submit any changes or additions. This would then essentially create a new row, with an updated version number for us to track.

    Hi @Taylor Riley

    Yes, there is.

    You could use the URL-Query feature to pre-populate the form.


    Would that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

  • This is great! Thank you! One question, will a new row be added in the Sheet that is tied to that form when any changes are made? We need to be able to track all changes and who made those changes

  • @Andrée Starå , I was looking into this further, and I don't think this solution will work for what I'm trying to achieve. The intent is to have a team fill out a form to show what billing capabilities are supported within a certain product. In the future, if there are any changes to supported features, they can come back to the original form and see what was originally filled out. All they would need to do is add or remove the impacted capabilities. We would also want to see who made the change and when.

    Is this possible with the solution provided above? If not, is there a workaround that I could put in place that would give similar results?

    Happy to help!

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])
